List of the Month

Each month we highlight one Internet, USENET Special Interest Group (SIG), or similar mailing list or Website.

Bug Net

One of the major news topics this month has been the ILOVEYOU virus and it's cousins. It seems fitting, therefore, that the Bug Net newsletter should be our May "List of the Month." Bug Net bills itself as the leading provider of software bug fixes, and software bugs are frequently they way virus authors get their programs to perform dastardly deeds.*

Bug Net charges for their services, but they offer a free newsletter and there is lots of free information available on their Website -- http://www.bugnet.com/ From this page you can subscribe to the newsletter, and read bug alerts and FAQs. It is a good place to become aware of fixes that are available for your favorite software, oftentimes free from the software vendor.
